My sister and I have just returned from the most wonderful short break which was so much better than we ever could have imagined. Hartwell House is perfect if you want total rest and relaxation and peace - it really can't be faulted. The historic surroundings are magnificent - walking down the sweeping staircases to sit by roaring fires in rooms with high ceilings - it is like being transported back to much gentler calmer times! The house is exceptionally clean - the food in the main dining room was incredible - even for vegetarians - we were offered three alternatives - much better than anywhere else we have stayed where this is made such a big deal of! The staff are the best I have encountered - they are polite and so helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them - our bedrooms were amazing - with big deep old fashioned baths - If you want less formal food then there is a cafe spa for light lunches - if you want to celebrate a special occasion - or want to escape the madness of the world this is the place for you! Other reviewers have said expect a formal tone - I agree that there is a quiet respectful way - but not at all stuffy - the staff make you feel very relaxed and welcome - we were very sorry when we had to come home!
